Kim Roberts as Ginny and Maria Nash as her daughter Luvaya. Those two folks on the left in the background look very familiar.
On Qresh, there are families who rule (nine of them) and there are families who serve. The Robbels are among the serving clans. but in exchange for arms to fight The Lady, Kendry promises them a seat at the Council of Nine, which should turn it into the Council of Ten (unless someone else gets bumped out). Aneela hasn’t revealed herself as the heir to the Kin Rit lands because the time isn’t right and “things might get stabby”, but when she does reveal herself, that will bring the total number of ruling families to eleven. (The Kin Rits, according to Aneela, were the original ruling family, and chose the other nine.)
Have the Kin Rit lands been abandoned since Khlyen’s departure? If not, who’s acting as caretaker there? Also, if Kendry and Aneela marry, does it unify the two families, and would that mean they have only one vote on the council? Continue reading →
Pree (Thom Allison) carries Zeph twenty miles across the badlands
John’s efforts to locate The Lady’s real body have the unexpected side effect of resurrecting Lucy (Tamsen McDonough) with all her memories intact. Once awakened, Lucy is able to rescue Fancy Lee (Sean Baek) from captivity, and in the process of his escape he stumbles on four large cocoons, the suggestion being that they contain The Lady’s real body, which means that The Lady might be some sort of ruling council rather than a single individual, or that her body might be stored in separate segments.
Zeph (Kelly McCormack) and Pree (Thom Allison) set out into the badlands on foot to escape The Lady’s death squads (which look a lot like the Jawa from STAR WARS). Pree must be in really good physical condition, because, when Zeph can’t walk any further, he carries her on his back the rest of the way to Turin’s safe house, a distance he estimates at twenty miles.

Khlyen (Rob Stewart) and Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) are human now, but Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) is somehow still Hullen. She was inside a Khlyen Cube during the death of the green, so it is possible that the cube offers a connection to a pool of green in another place far enough away to not have been affected by the spores (see episode 4.10). The Khlyen Cube is probably based on Hullen technology, and up till now we really hadn’t seen it do much. On Arkyn, it worked like an elevator. This time, when Jaq enters the cube, it disappears, but not all at once. The cube’s outline remains visible as it rotates and reduces in apparent size, as though it is tumbling into a multi-dimensional wormhole. Continue reading →
